How nice

Nikon have just announced a revised 300 2.8 vr lense oh yes i thought ill be having one of them please wifey for my combined xmas and birthday prezzie........................................err rr maybe not at a eye watering RRP of 5099
Sorry no way can they justify that cost for one lense there again if people wanna pay it they will keep makin it It was spotted on another site that someone had compared prices in EU countries to prices else where and it seems we are 30% more in EU states on high end nikon lenses

Re: How nice

Street price would be a good bit less than that though, wouldn't it?

Re: How nice

Plus its probably aimed at the professionals who are making a living from their photography and in most cases have their equipment provided by their employers (magazines, newspapers etc)

No no, we all need a grump, I never think about output of lenses for the pro either, thought they were blowing a raspberry at us poor amateurs.

Re: How nice

It's not worth it unless you remember that it only costs a pro less than 2K. Before it starts to earn its keep it needs to be used on about 5 shoots to cover that cost. So the question is really why would they sell it for less since they can't produce a lot of the high end stuff fast enough to meet demand as it is anyway.
